Sometimes, making a New Year’s resolution can be just as difficult as sticking to it. But that doesn’t mean you should just pick one of those cliché resolutions that get recycled year after year – i.e., eat less, spend less, drink less, etc. Prepare yourself for success in 2019 by creating a personal goal that you’re actually going to want to keep.
Think about all your long-held dreams. Maybe you’ve always wanted to learn a new language, or perhaps you’d love to grow your own fruit and vegetables. You might even want to tick some more destinations off your travel bucket list.
Whatever you dream of, consider what New Year’s resolution you could make to help realise it, and then set a goal that’s:
Be specific about what you want to achieve and when exactly you want to achieve it. Remember, if you can’t measure your progress, you’ll never know when you’re doing well.
Make sure you have the time and resources in place to help achieve your New Year’s resolution. If you haven’t got them right now, make obtaining them part of your plan.
If you’re not excited by your New Year’s resolution now, you’re certainly not going to feel motivated to stick to it a few months down the line.
